This was yummy! I did make one change because I didn't have heavy cream on hand. So I used 2% milk. It still baked up nicely. But my nutritional percentages are quite different. 1 piece: 426 calories, 23g fat (11g saturated fat) 138mg Cholesterol, 262mg Sodium, 52g Carbohydrate, 8g Protein.

This was good. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller baking dish. I buttered and floured the baking dish and had no trouble removing it.

Just OK. I followed the recipe exactly, but the bananas came out dark so the entire look was not very appetizing, and the taste was just so-so. I expected something caramelized, sweet and gooey, but this was just not delicious enough to waste my precious calories on.
